The ManagementGroupConnectionSettings class includes cache modes for the client-side interface using one of the values of the CacheMode enumeration.

Use the Configuration cache mode to cache configuration data such as Management Packs, classes, and module types. The Configuration cache mode is best used for doing lots of operations in the configuration space, such as moving up and down the various type hierarchies. It is also useful when working extensively with MonitoringObject (but not PartialMonitoringObject) and need to access the property values of many instances of different class types. The user interface runs in this mode by default.

Use the ManagementPacks cache mode to cache only Management Packs. The ManagementPacks cache mode is best used when configuration-related operations are used, but not used extensively. The ManagementPacks cache mode is also the best mode in which to create Management Packs, because that requires extensive iterations for getting management packs, but not necessarily other objects.

Every object in a management pack (such as a rule, class, task, and so on) requires a ManagementPack that is not returned in the initial call. If you call GetMonitoringRules, every rule that comes back makes another call to the server to get its ManagementPack object if the cache mode is None. If you are doing this, run in the ManagementPacks cache mode.

Set the cache mode to None to cache nothing. The None cache mode is best used for operational data-related operations. If you are mostly working with alerts or performance data, or even simply submitting a single task, use the None cache mode.
